North-Central Vietnam

Welcome home. Mabuhay! We're back in our home land. It's a strange experience over and over again to be back in a familiar place when you just came back from traveling from another country. In a span of 9 days, we've been to many different places, met a lot of diverse people and experienced a lot of new things. These are the reason probably why it takes time to process your emotions after traveling. Being shot back to reality and going back to daily routine is really challenging. Physically tired from the adventures, there's a lot of sleep to catch up and the stomach had to adjust to the normal food you've grown up to. Also, there are dozens of stories you want to share but it seems that there's not much time. You feel wanting to go back or travel to somewhere else instead. Yes they call it travel bug. Being a ‘traveller’ is a mindset that gains power with every day you spend on the road. Being displaced becomes a part of your identity. Being lost is your personal enlightenment. Travel has always been an exhilarating and important part of my life. Every phenomenal memory I have on the road has infinitely more to do with the people I was surrounded by than the actual place I was in. I love the cities I had whirlwind romances in. I look back fondly on the cheap, hostels where I stayed up all night talking and laughing with old and new friends. One realization I had is that if we were half as open with people in our everyday lives as we are with each other on the road, everywhere we went would be an adventure. When we travel it's normal to get caught up in the act of constant motion. What was meant to be a soul-searching journey turns into a series of famous monuments getting crossed off list. And in the midst of it all, it becomes all too easy to forget that constant movement isn’t the point of any of it. At the end of the day we’re all human and we’re all looking for the same core things – people who understand us, challenges that grow us and places that make us feel at home. Know that there’s a time and a place to keep going. Similarly, there is and there must be a time to stay put.

Lee & Natasha through Southeast Asia

We were better prepared today to actually leave Hanoi on the bikes. After picking up our bikes from the mechanic, we got full tanks of petrol, we ate, we packed the bags on properly. It still took us about 2 hours to get out of Hanoi because of the sheer volume of people there. It took us about 5 hours in total to arrive into Hoa Binh, the next city along on the way to Mai Chau. It was about 17:30 when we arrived and the torrential rain started. We decided to get a hotel because driving the bike is really tiring. I went out to get some food and manager of the hotel offered to drive me to the local takeaway to bring food back, so we had a BBQ mix on some rice and went to sleep. We will get up early tomorrow to drive the last few hours to Mai Chau.

Europe: 20 countries 🗺 37 stops 🚌 132 days 🛌

So this is it, the last day! I can't believe how fast the trip has flown by but I'm sat in my hostel now waiting to set off for my flight and I'm sooo excited to go home and see my family 😀 There's been a fair few bumps along the way with my bag being stolen, broken ankles and food poisoning but if anything it's shown me how awesome people are, whenever I've needed help people are always more than happy to offer their support. It's been an amazing trip and it's most certainly been the people that've made this experience as incredible as it was ✌🏼️
